Have you been there? When your emails pile up faster than you can seem to get rid of them? So have I and I've finally come up with a plan!
I set aside one day a week to clean out my email inboxes. Not the whole day, but it's a set commitment to get it done.
Although I do a half way decent job of getting rid of junk on a daily basis, it seems that the ones I think I need to read pile up by the end of the week. It's my personal goal to keep each inbox under ten emails. No matter how good I think I'm doing...by the end of the week, I'm overwhelmed!!
Hence my policy of clean up day! I go through any remaining emails to see what I need to deal with and what can go away. It's amazing how many I thought were vital on Wednesday mean diddly by Sunday!
Mark your calendars, set a date, and clear out those inboxes!! You'll feel so much better, I promise!!
